    I have yet to figure out why the mini-guide would appear when pressing select during a recording playback. Seems a bit odd. I am torn as to if this is a good thing or a bad thing, especially since if you press select again, thinking you are going to exit the guide, you don't- you get taken immediately to the program under the cursor (which is, actually, quite logical).

    I will clarify the entry, though.

    From http://www.theverge.com/2012/1/10/2...-streaming-dvr-content-to-ipad-with-prototype

    1. TiVo says it's been using Adobe Air instead of (now-deprecated) Flash, and it's still working to improve performance and caching across the system with every new update.
    2. TiVo also says it just hired a new engineer to lead up a larger API effort to expand the number of apps on its platform, including more interactive apps that let you directly engage with what you're watching

    NICE!

    My sister's Premiere has the problem in My Shows when Groups are on sometimes recordings disappear (like this guy reported here). Anyone know if this is fixed in 20.2? It drives her nuts but I've never seen the problem on my on box.

    My XL had no problem reading/writing seven concurrent HD streams, unlike last year when streaming was accidentally enabled and it would reboot.(Recording 2, streaming 3 to other Premieres, 1 Amazon download, and 1 previously recorded show.)

    I wish i still had my other Premieres to see how many streams to other Premieres it could do.

    [couple of nits: I think you mean CAPTIONS, not subtitles. And it's usually referred to as 1XFF, meaning it's the first of the three FF. 3X usually refers to the fastest FF. And yes, I know that 1XFF is about 3x the speed.]

    This would be a HUGE backward shift for me. I watch 100% captions (I'm deaf) anyway. And I often will watch at 1XFF thru news shows and whatnot, using captions to keep up with what's being reported. If this is true, giant GIANT step backwards.

    Unfortunately, I have been away for a week, and have missed the 20.2 rollout. No way to tell if I got it, or to validate any of these things I've been reading about for several days. I'm just hoping (if my Elite rec'd it) that it went with no trouble--no lockups, etc. I've got days & days of recordings set while I'm away.

    Thanks for the nit corrections.

    The lack of captions at the first ff speed exists for both hd and sd displays.

    Another problem is that the listing for the size in Gb for individual programs is totally wrong (in general it lists 0.0) for sd display, but is correct for hd display.

    That is a carryover from 14.9. Re-added.

    Somewhat lame workaround for 4.3 is to disable 720p in the Video settings. This means that you can watch 480i either at 480 with aspect ratio choices, or upscale it to 1080.

    I just noticed that Search By Title in the SDUI works differently then before. Before if you searched it would always show the next upcoming showing for every channel. Now it shows one listing for every program and when you click on it it's the same as selecting View Upcoming with a list of all upcoming showings. I like it! :up:

    Edit: Actually, playing with it more, it actually works more like the search in the HDUI. It finds shows with any reference to the word you're typing, not just an alphabetical list. :up: :up:

    I also really like the new consistent background between menus. It's cleaner and less jarring from one to the next.

    Can't you just use the up arrow to change resolutions? If you switch to 480, you should be able to change the aspect without having to deselect 720p.

    I am fairly sure that change occurred in 14.9, not in 20.2. Can anyone else please confirm this, please?

    Hi, thanks for maintaining the 20.2 changelog message thread! One minor comment, below.

    Item 3.2.2 should be moved into the SDUI Negative section, since Kid Zone isn't available in the HDUI.

    "3.2.2 The KidZone dialog bug for the "Please Wait" dialog when selecting KidZone is still present. The dialog displays almost completely off the screen. This bug was introduced in 14.9."

    That's the bug - you get to change the aspect ratio every time you switch channels, and the setting then carries over to the Tivo menu. the menu in 480i is not a thing of beauty...

    TiVodesign just tweeted that Hulu results are now integrated into search for those of us with the latest update.

    After modifying the "Season Pass Manager" priorities a message appears saying "Updating the ToDo List" -- a task still not done in the background and which may take several minutes


    Not positive this is new:
    When modifying the season pass recording options in the HDUI through search-> get this program..., the "A" button shortcuts to "Record Season Pass with these options"

    This is why I use KMTTG to modify my season pass priorities. Not only is it easier, but it also does it in the background like the iPad App.

    I wonder if the HDUI version will change this.

    Maybe. I only have one Premiere and several S3 units, so I don't search that much on the Premiere.

    Either way it's a welcome improvement over what I'm use to on the S3 units.

    One thing I verified is NOT fixed is the audio bug with SD recordings and the trick play sounds that was introduced in 14.8. If you're playing an SD recording and hit FF 3 times you hear the first Bee Doop but not the second or 3rd. Most people probably don't even notice this one though since HD recordings don't play the trick play sounds at all due to the AC3 audio.

    Re. 2.2, I'm no longer seeing this artifact - it may have been related to post-SW-upgrade tasks contending with user activity.

    And some of us have DD on all SD channels too like here on FiOS. So we never here those.

    Here's something I didn't know and it may not be new.

    In menus that offer the viewing window, you can toggle it on/off with the SLOW button. This can't be done when the guide is up.
